Yorkshire Day Celebrations

The “First Tuesdays” group from Our Lady of Mount Carmel at Silsden, part of the Embrace project, held a very jolly Yorkshire themed celebration last week with a Yorkshire produce raffle, dialect based rhymes and poems and a special slideshow. They are very pleased with their outreach to the local community which reflects the caring and neighbourly face of Silsden.
Regular attendees are already asking about next year’s programme of events and saying how much they enjoy themselves together at these afternoons.
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday 4th September where there will be a local speaker talking about his childhood and upbringing on a busy fairground.
